Synopsis/ Description
The Indian Parliament passed the Right of children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE), in 2009, giving every child between the ages of 6 and 14 years, this essential privilege. The enrollment figures show a steady rise, yet, the drop-out rates also show a dismal increase. Filmed inside municipal schools in Pune, Maharashtra, through a series of classroom sessions, mid-day meals and teacher-student interactions, the Documentary reveals what goes on inside our schools.
